The Bible According to Google Earth

Image credit: 

Here's a cool idea realized: a Sydney, Australia-based art collective called The Glue Society has re-created scenes from the Bible as if captured by Google Earth's ubiquitous satellites. Says Glue Society's James Dive: "We like to disorientate audiences a little with all our work. And with this piece we felt technology now allows events which may or may not have happened to be visualized and made to appear dramatically real. As a method of representation satellite photography is so trusted, it has been interesting to mess with that trust." Let's see what they created!

Noah and That Large Boat of His

It looks like he and those crazy animals have just come to rest on a mountaintop.

The Garden of Eden

Looks pretty darn pleasant, actually. (The birds were a nice touch.) Can you spot the happy couple?

The Crucifixion

Any events -- fictional, Biblical or otherwise -- you'd like to see from a Google-eye view?
